Plummeting Stocks Provide a Long Overdue Breath of Fresh Air


Tuesday’s nearly 400-point decline in the Dow Industrials was a long overdue breath of fresh air. We shouldn’t assume it is the death knell for the nine-year-old bull market, however, since money managers with their economic lives at stake need only buy a handful of stocks in concert to turn things around. Even so, we’ll be paying particular attention to the shares of home builders (see TOL tout below), since they are less prone to be driven by bulls**t and hubris than such Wall Street faves as TSLA, NFLX, GOOG, MSFT, FB and AAPL.  Meanwhile, the Dow Industrials have fallen 589 points, or 2.2%, since peaking on Friday at record levels. They would need to fall a further 432 points, touching 25,256, to announce that something might be seriously wrong.

That’s right!
Remember…you are “Long and Strong Emotional Support Peacocks”
Don’t miss this opportunity like you missed Bitcoin!
With a little side bet on “Emotional Support Penguins”, because you just never know about these crazy markets!

Yes, a nice little pullback.
Expect sales of “Emotional Support Peacocks” to skyrocket!
Get in early, and back up the truck!
Of course, the mean old airlines are trying to throw a wet blanket on that trend.

“In announcing its new policy, Delta noted that some passengers’ emotional support animals were creatures like turkeys, gliding possums, snakes and spiders. Delta issued its crackdown after a passenger’s 70-pound support dog bit another customer in the face.”

Oh, and peacocks, don’t forget the peacocks!
Somewhere, H L Mencken is smiling!

The consistent accuracy of Rick Ackerman’s forecasts is well known in the trading world, where his Hidden Pivot Method has achieved cult status. Rick’s proprietary trading/forecasting system is easy to learn, probably because he majored in English, not rocket science. Just one simple but powerful trick -- managing the risk of an ongoing trade with stop-losses based on ‘impulse legs’ – can be grasped in three minutes and put to profitable use immediately. Quite a few of his students will tell you that using ‘impulsive stops’ has paid for the course many times over.

Another secret Rick will share with you, “camouflage trading,” takes more time to master, but once you get the hang of it trading will never be the same. The technique entails identifying ultra-low-risk trade set-ups on, say, the one-minute bar chart, and then initiating trades in places where competition tends to be thin.

Most important of all, Rick will teach you how to develop market instincts (aka “horse sense”) by observing the markets each day from the fixed vantage point that only a rigorously disciplined trading system can provide.

The three-hour Hidden Pivot Course is offered live each month. If it’s more convenient, you can take it in recorded form at your leisure, as many times as you like. The course fee includes “live” trading sessions (as opposed to hypothetical ‘chalk-talk’) every Wednesday morning, access to hundreds of recorded hours of tutorial sessions, and access to an online library that will help you achieve black-belt mastery of Hidden Pivot trading techniques.

The next webinar will be held on Tuesday, March 5. Click below to register or get more information.
